    Governing Body Represents Who?

    Today I uploaded a new article to my blog examining the veracity of Watchtower’s claim to represent all the “anointed ones” on earth. There is gigantic absurdity that to this day Watchtower leaves unexplained, except to contradict itself.

    My article is titled Governing Body Represents Who? and is available at:

    You're absolutely right. They "represent" the "anointed" because they PRESUME... I say again, PRESUME to speak for them.

    But they have absolutely ZERO clue(s) as to how or what the average anointed thinks or feels about ANYTHING... because they don't care, won't ask, and, in the event that some actually VOICE their opinion, refuse to listen.

    My local MP represents me in Parliament.

    I can write to him, e-mail him, telephone him and call and speak to him at his monthly 'surgery' sessions. He sends out a regular newsletter and asks for opinion on matters. That is representation.

    When was the last time the WT/GB actually ASKED for ANYONE'S opinion?

    I can recall nonesuch.

    I asked a couple JW's about feedback, and they said that's what the Questions From Readers is for.

    So the Governing Body "represents" the faithful & discreet slave, yet

    -- They don't know how many "true" anointed there are

    -- They don't know who they are

    -- They don't know what they think

    -- They don't appear to care about this ignorance


    It's quite apparent the writers of these WT articles count on the willingness of the readers to not think at all about what is written, just accept it one sentence at a time, regardless of whether the latest sentence they have read conflicts with some other sentence read earlier.

    When was the last QFR that ackowledged the legitimacy of a doubt that was raised?

    When was the last time a reader received the reply, "Thank you to all our dear anointed brothers who continue to challenge us with intelligent and valid questions, we will prayerfully take your words into consideration?"
